I love scrathboard! It is one of my favorite mediums. I did this drawing about five years back when I was 16.

I agree with Martin. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif I especially like how you have done the koala`s different textures. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

When you were 16, huh. Yikes. I think this is truly wonderful. Must have taken hours...

Thanks everyone for your comments. I have more recent scratchboard, however it is a tough medium to scan due to the contrast and many fine lines. I just found a place to get SB for a good price and ordered some so I hope to get a chance to do more of them in teh near future. It does take the right picture to make a good SB IMO. Does anyone know how to do color under scratchboard? I have seen this a few times, but don't know how to do it. Any info would be great!

Thanks!
